"People travel because it teaches them things they could learn no other way.”- Lance Morrow.


I am a firm believer in the value of travelling and seeing the world. I believe that travel expands not only your knowledge of the world, but also your wisdom. Anyone can study a destination, but to go and explore it for yourself is a truely unique experience. I aim to bring my passion for travel to this role at Lonely Planet, helping travellers and consumers across all social media channels to explore their world.
